Tour Finisterre - Costa da Morte from Santiago

The tour starts at 9 am from Plaza de Galicia, just around the corner from Banco Santander.

Our first stop will be in Ponte Maceira, a small town near Santiago de Compostela and a must stop for pilgrims who continue their journey towards the "end of the world". It is a charming little village where the protagonist is the 14th century bridge over the river Tambre. An enclave that surprises both by the natural beauty of the environment and by a beautiful set of medieval mills.

We will head towards the coast. On the way we will stop to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the coast of Carnota. Lira, Carnota Beach, Boca do Río, Mount Pindo and Cape Fisterra will be presented in front of us, always embraced by the Atlantic.

We will reach Ézaro, where the river Xallas falls into the sea forming a waterfall, the Ézaro waterfall, probably the most famous in Galicia and unique in Continental Europe.

From here we will go along the coast and our next destination will be the Cape of Fisterra (Finisterre). End of the world for Romans and Greeks and border between the world of the living and the dead for Celtic cultures. There we will visit what was believed to be the westernmost point in Europe, the lighthouse and kilometer zero (Km 0) of the Camino de Santiago.

In the town of Fisterra we will stop for lunch and have free time to walk around the city and its fishing port, which supplies fresh products to all the local restaurants.

We will resume the itinerary and arrive in Muxia. A possible end to this continuation of the Camino de Santiago. Here we will know a spectacular natural landscape, a beautiful baroque sanctuary at the foot of the Atlantic and with three stones considered sacred by Galicians since time immemorial (we will tell you why).

On the way back to Santiago we will stop to visit one of the largest barns on the Costa da Morte. The "Hórreo" of San Martiño de Ozón dates from the 16th century, making it the oldest of the giant Cabaceiros in Galicia. It is also located next to a Romanesque church where it has been worshiped since the 12th century and a small monastery now converted into a hostel for pilgrims.

Throughout the journey, our guides (Official Tourism Guides of Galicia) will be quoting stories, legends and interesting information about the area.
